What I Heard This Morning: Frog Eyes

Carey Mercer's Frog Eyes are releasing their newest album, Paul's Tomb: A Triumph in late April. "Flower In A Glove" and "Lear In Love" are both lengthy and fuzz-rhythmic, Mercer's cries some distant cousin of Bowie's glamorous affect. There's remarkably unfinished or disassembled going on Frog Eyes, which I find both fascinating and frustrating, elated though impatient to get to the finish line.
